Douglas Schools Close Early

Douglas County Schools are closing early due to weather conditions.

The Douglas County School System will release students one hour early today. Release times are 1:45 p.m. for elementary and 2:30 p.m. for middle and high schools. High school students who drive are released now.

Parents who drive their children to school are able to pick them up at anytime.   All Tuesday after school activities and programs are cancelled for today, including after school programs, athletics, extracurricular activities, practices and meetings.

School system staff will continue to monitor conditions and a decision about Wednesday will be made at a later time.

Can anyone find out why they took so long to decide to close the schools and why only one hour early?? At the moment they are telling me my kid is going to have to spend the night at school. Everyone knew it was coming, but they waited until the last minute to decide to close early, and by the release time the roads were already bad.

cd, I have been wondering the exact same thing! My children and I JUST got home from their school at 7:45 this evening after inching our way home on awful roads and seeing people sliding into ditches left and right! Douglas county schools should have been closed today! Someone really dropped the ball on this one!
